Over this past Memorial Day weekend, two people were injured during a shooting in Miami Beach and now, local authorities are reportedly questioning DaBaby’s involvement.
According to the Miami New Times, Miami Beach police spokesperson Ernesto Rodriguez said, “detectives are actively following several leads pertaining to last night’s shooting near 1 Street and Ocean Drive….I am able to confirm one of the many individuals currently being interviewed is Jonathan Lyndale Kirk (professionally known as DaBaby).”
Reporter Andy Slater stated that sources said, “DaBaby fired off at least one round outside Prime 112 in Miami Beach.” The North Carolina rapper told authorities that he did it in self defense.
Miami Herald reported, “Monday’s shooting, which took place before midnight, caused police to temporarily shut down the MacArthur Causeway in both directions. Authorities also closed the 100 block of Ocean Drive to vehicles and pedestrians.”
“Early Tuesday morning, police said they had detained ‘several possible subjects’ and that multiple witnesses are currently being interviewed as a part of the ongoing investigation.”
